When examining your own personal assessment I found some interesting views of myself by working through the Pearson Prentice Hall Self-Assessment Library. Some of the judgments resulting from the tests have surprised me, while other results confirmed what I already suspected. This assessment will examine and give some insight on who I am in the business world, how I work with others in the realm of business, and life within my organization. I will also explain how the Holy Spirit has worked in my life to transform my weakness into strengths to become a better person, employee, and leader.
What about Me?
Personality Insights The Pearson Prentice Hall Self-Assessment Library online sites (Pearson Education, Inc., 2008) indicate that my personality is an “ESFJ.” I am labeled as “The Provider” and I believe this is true in the way that I happily give my time and energy to make sure that the needs of others are met. According to “Type Talk at Work,” the “EFSJ” personality type “is a Santa Claus management style” (Type Talk at Work, p381). Just like Santa, the “EFSJ” is keeping track of all the details and “checking his list” often.
Values and Attitudes According to the online self-assessment, “values are basic convections of what is good, right and desirable” (Pearson Education, Inc., 2008). In my work, values are important to the organization as the company places much of its practice on ensuring that all things are done the right way with the highest standards.
What motivates me in my work is the ability to provide assistance to customers by giving them solutions to their problems. According to Robbins and Judge, “motivation is defined as the processes that account for an individual’s intensity, direction, and persistence of effort toward attaining a goal” (Robbins & Judge, 2009, p 175). My goal is to take care of the customer in a manner that is in line with my company’s values, as well as my own.
